I do not disagree with your first point, but, unfortunately, it is SOOOO politically incorrect to let our little darlings know what true consequences mean!! I know from personal experience.
My sister was badly burned in a school fire when she was 12. The cause of the fire was that 2 girls decided it would be fun to set mattresses in the gym storage area on fire - for whatever reason. Well, the fire wasn't discovered for quite awhile - guess the fire inspection that was supposedly done not that long prior to, didn't include testing the fire bells or sprinkler system. Needless to say, since it was an older school, the gym had lots of hardwood and the fire really got going.
Eventually the fire was discovered but not before it was raging out of control. I'm told that as students were evacuating from the upper story of the school, the roof was already starting to come down but I honestly don't know the truth of that. I was living in Manitoba at the time and this all took place in B.C.
My sister's class was second to the last for evacuation and, they had to walk past the gym to exit. The doors exploded as her and a classmate were walking past and a burning door landed on top of her and the explosion threw her classmate out the exit. Long story short, she had 3rd degree burns over 70% of her body and is terribly scarred to this day. She was developmentally delayed but a real popinjay at the time - talkative, very active etc.. A real little cutie. But, she's never been the same since.
My mom wanted those girls to go to the Vancouver General to the burn unit so that they could see the result of their actions but that was kyboshed of course as that would have been too much of a hardship for those girls. I thought it would be the perfect "sentence" for them and a real eye-opener that actions have consequences. I never did hear what happened to those girls but I doubt if it was anything serious. (They were both 16ish at the time). I quite frankly didn't have a problem with the girls seeing my sister and, hopefully, having nightmares about it since my sister lives it everyday of her life.
Sound cruel? Maybe, but as my sisters legal guardian, I know what she has to go through day in and day out. Her hands are so malformed she can't even "wipe herself" properly. I am still angry at what has happened to her, mostly because there didn't seem to be any consequence for those girls. I hope their lives are happy and full. Would be nice to know if they even think about my sister or what they did.
